Because this woman accomplished a major feat within the United States military, she’s not likely to earn high praise from the left. Lest we forget: libs aren’t the biggest supporters of the armed forces.

That being said, good for this soldier!

The female National Guard soldier, whose name is being withheld due to mission security concerns for special operations troops, graduated from Army Special Forces training, received her Special Forces Tab, and donned her Green Beret at a socially distanced ceremony at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

CONTINUED:

Commanding General for US Army Special Operations Command Lt. Gen. Fran Beaudette told the graduating class Thursday that “from here, you will go forward and join the storied formation of the Green Berets where you will do what you are trained to do: challenge assumptions, break down barriers, smash through stereotypes, innovate, and achieve the impossible.”

[…]

The soldier, a Special Forces engineer sergeant, first completed an initial 24-day screening program before heading into the yearlong Special Forces Qualification Course (Q Course), The New York Times, which first reported her graduation, reported Thursday.

So far in 2020, lawmakers have appropriated more than $2.5 trillion to the coronavirus crisis, and more spending will be needed to keep the economy going until the threat subsides. “The total amount owed by the federal government is about to top $25 trillion,” NPR reports, a number that politicians are, understandably, reluctant to talk about. But it is something they can take steps to deal with.

All this unexpected spending means lawmakers will have to find places to trim some spending they had already agreed to, in order to make more money available for the current emergency. One easy place to consider cuts is the wasteful F-35 program.

This program has been going on for years, since the military decided in the 1990s to build a jet that could serve the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps all at once. It became the F-35, or Joint Strike Fighter.

But this sort of experiment has never worked. As long ago as the early 1960s, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara wanted a shared platform for the Navy and Air Force. McNamara’s aircraft policy failed. “The Tactical Fighter Experimental—initially known as the TFX, and later the F-111—proved to be so costly, and the services’ needs so incompatible, the Navy eventually pulled out of the program,” Matthew Fay explains.

Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

If President Trump did anything remotely close to what Biden is doing regarding limiting the press’ access to him, he would’ve been impeached a third time. Must be nice to have the mainstream media on your side! From New York Post: WASHINGTON — The White House is imposing a new $170 COVID-19 testing fee on reporters who want to access the West Wing, in what critics say is the latest step that constrains press coverage of President Biden. The Biden administration already imposed sweeping restrictions, including capping at 80 the number of pre-approved journalists who are able to access White House grounds on a given day — each of whom must take a COVID-19 rapid test before 1 p.m. CONTINUED: Under former President Donald Trump, any reporter with a “hard pass” was able to breeze past the White House gates at any time and without taking a coronavirus test. But few abused the privilege due to peer pressure to limit visits. The latest restrictions were announced in an on-the-record email from White House Correspondents’ Association President Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for The Associated Press.

Anybody who believes that police officers are doing anything other than keeping our streets safe and arresting criminals is completely delusional. All you have to do, you know, if you don’t want to be shot by a cop, is cooperate with instructions. Why is that such a difficult concept for liberals to understand? From The Daily Wire: Los Angeles County’s new top prosecutor has made another controversial move that has angered local law enforcement unions. According to FOX 11, “Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is under scrutiny after he hired a public defender who helped with his campaign to a high-ranking prosecutor position in his administration.” The outlet reports that Tiffany Blacknell “has in the past posted anti-police comments on social media,” which first surfaced last year. CONTINUED: Investigative reporter Bill Melugin posted screenshots of Ms. Blacknell’s previous comments disparaging law enforcement to Twitter earlier this week. Blacknell has referred to LAPD officers as “barbarians” and called for the abolition of prisons. Melugin also shared a photograph of Blacknell posing with D.A. Gascón and another showing Blacknell donning a t-shirt that read, “The Police Are Trained To Kill Us.” According to Melugin, “the former public defender posted on Facebook during the series of looting[s] that took place in May 2020 that she herself was a looter during the 1992 Rodney King riots.” https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1364787696418217988?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1364787696418217988%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us https://twitter.com/NiggaTheory/status/1306977001857638400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306977001857638400%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us
